Music Web Sites
Musicians were immediately hooked on the web, seeing its potential as a community builder and a creative outlet. This program looks at several early music sites including fogworld.com, the site for Fog City Records. Also turntable.com, a site that pioneered enhanced CDs and worked with such groups as the Beastie Boys. Michael Moroney, creator of virginrecords.com, guides us through his site and several music fan sites. Also featured is Severe Tire Damage, the first band ever to perform live on the internet. Josh Gabriel demonstrates Mix Man software, one of the first software programs that enabled music novices to create their own mixes. Shot on location at the CyberSmith internet cafe in Palo Alto, California. Hosts are Jane Wither, Andrew deVries, and Stewart Cheifet. Originally broadcast in 1996.
